Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) have several applications, such as encompassing gas adsorption, separation, catalysis, sensing, chemical warfare reagent degradation, and the removal of pollutants from aqueous media. The pressing challenge of extracting common pollutants, including heavy metal ions, anions, oil, and radionuclides from water sources is a critical issue due to the widespread problem of environmental contamination. Various approaches have been explored for this purpose, such as sorbents, chemical precipitation, and traditional membrane separation. However, these methods often suffer from inadequate selectivity and low pollutant uptake. Developing water-stable MOFs is the key to advancing effective water purification techniques, but the primary challenge lies in crafting MOF structures that can maintain their stability when exposed to water. Water-Stable Metal-Organic Frameworks (WSMOFs) presents water-stable metal-organic frameworks for mitigating environmental pollutants, i.e. sensing and degradation/removal applications to protect the ecological system both environmental and aquatic life from various types of toxic pollutants released from industries.
